Below is the information directly from the Saving Our Species unit and the Office of Environment & Heritage, NSW.

Thanks to those who have already made photo submissions. There is still time to submit a photo or two if you have some hidden away on a hard drive somewhere! We have a solid representation of cockatoos and orchids already but what else is out there?? Would be great to showcase flora and fauna species from right across south east NSW including Shoalhaven, Illawarra, Southern Highlands and Tablelands, Eurobodalla, Snowy Mountains, Monaro plains and South East Forests.

Submission deadline has been extended
until midnight Monday August 27.

The threatened species photo exhibition returns this September 2018! 

We are currently seeking submissions for the exhibition. Similar to last year, the photographer is asked to donate the photo and nominate a conservation NGO of their choice.

If the photo is selected for exhibition, it will be sold via silent auction during the exhibition. All income generated from sales are then donated to the photographers nominated NGO.

  • Submit via email along with your image to rog.illawarra@environment.nsw.gov.au
  • If your image is over 5MB please compress or provide a transfer link
